This blog is an amateur photographer's attempt to show how beautiful the world really is. He is drawn to the colors of nature like a moth to a candle light. What are showcased here are nature's grand display of colors at sunrise and sunset, beautiful beaches and off-the-beaten track locations in his beloved Philippines, waterfalls and some of nature's great sculptures, architectural gems, and other views from around SE Asia that he was fortunate to see at one point.

mauban | cagbalete island: lowtide stroll


Cagbalete Lowtide: Friends

Cagbalete island has one of the most amazing low tide scenes. During low tide, the water recedes 800meters (up to 1km in some areas) from the shore, drying up a 3.6km stretch of white sand beach. Two of the local kids,  Billy Joe and Lawrence ( aka Momon), took us for a quick stroll one sunny afternoon.

Cagbalete Lowtide

It was a surreal scene. The tide went down quite fast. One minute you are on a beach, the next its like the desert. One of the anchored boats looked like it has been transplanted from somewhere.

Where did the water go?

Our power duo guides Billy Joe [left, see photo below] and Lawrence talked about growing up in this paradise, about school and their classmates. Their favorite time of the year? Summer of course!

Cagbalete Lowtide: Summer Bliss

During weekends and specially during the summer season when there's an influx of tourists in the island, they both help their parents out by running errands for the resort guests. [Lawrence's  father was our boatman that weekend]

Lawrence proudly announced he got a "sabit" during the school's closing ceremony. I was taken aback for "sabit" can be translated to "failed subject". He quickly clarified: "sabit" means a pin or ribbon. He got a ribbon for being the class' Best Behaved student :)
